Skype for Android updated with Hebrew, Arabic support

A new update for Skype for Android is bringing support for Arabic and Hebrew to the Skype experience. The update brings the app to version 7.0.5 overall, and if your device is currently set for Arabic or Hebrew, you can simply update Skype now to automatically switch to your device OS language next time you sign in to Skype.

This update marks the first time that Hebrew and Arabic enter the the native right-to-left language experience. The Skype team is noting that they have recreated every transition animation, and optimized navigation to deliver the best native right-to-left user experience. Additionally, the team is urging users to stay tuned as more right-to-left languages are released in the coming months.  As always, though, you can continue to deliver your feedback to the Skype team by going to “Feedback” under the “Support” section of the settings portion of the app.
